Art Freckles & Freebie Fridays!

This week's challenge over at Art Freckles for the "Use Your Stash" Contest was to use:

1. Overlays or Transparencies
2. Decorative Staples (like for the Fastenator)
3. Metal Anchors/Photo Turns
4. Sticker Alpha's (flat stickers here, not Thickers!)
5. Patterned Papers prior to 2008 from any of the following companies: S.E.I., Creative Imaginations

I have the hardest time finding the older papers since giving away most of my older stash before I left home. I'm only find maybe one or two sheets of paper that fit the challenges but I'm making it work!

This is my piece for week 3.... "At the Helm"....

The circle stamp almost in the center of the page is a one of the cool seal stamps form the "Seal It" stamp collection from my Stamp BOX. Love this set!

Close up.....

  3. Wow! Such cute pictures of S. Did you need me to mail you some paper??? I promise we are getting a little package together....must mail this week. You know some of it I did send in to the school, and see it come home often in craft projects that E does at school, so it is being put to good use.

    This is just beautiful. Of course you have a great subject to work with so it's hard to go wrong. This layout brought back so many memories of my boys (now 24 and 19) that I think I spent a good 5 minutes just looking at it over and over again. TFS

  5. Great layout Ally!!!!
